Give Back While Gift-Giving This Holiday Season

December 13, 2010

Having trouble shopping for that family member or friend who has everything? Are you looking for a stand-out gift this year? Or maybe you are hoping to give back while gift giving this Christmas? Each holiday season, my parents donate to a charity of my choice on my behalf. Every year, it is my favorite present.
